PEC to Present at the Fifth International Conference on Railway Technology

Michalis Hadjioannou will be presenting a paper on “Multidirectional Breakaway Connection for Catenary Poles” at the Fifth International Conference on Railway Technology in Montpellier, France on Tuesday, August 23, 2022. The presentation discusses the development of a novel multidirectional breakaway connection for catenary poles that can reduce injuries from derailed passenger railcars. This connection is the end-result of a multi-year research and development effort funded by the US Department of Transportation.
